How hard would it be to DIY a master filter install in to that?
DarthKermit: It should be fine; they're designed to fit inside the ETP box. You might have some fun squeezing all the wires back in.
sonyxperiageek: Well I can't even get the box open! Even with different sizes of a flat-head screwdriver! Lol..
Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

InstallerUFB: and taking a look at the colour combinations of the wires that have been connected (red & black) away to some of the jack points / That combination dosent make a twisted pr / you will likely have DSL issues without a filter.
The correct combinations in the white cables, with the rainbow colours, (known as a 6way) are Red & White, Blue & Green and Orange & Black - these pairs have low twist rates - these cables are OK for DSL. The Grey sheathed version of this cable generaly isnt made up of twisted pairs (all the wires were twisted together - and are not realy suitable fro DSL.
This type of cable was superceded by the white cable with 2 pairs (blue/bluewhite Orange/Orangewhite) (known as home lan) these have better twist rates and are more suitable for DSL delivery
Cat5/6 cables have a similar twit rate and are the best for DSL delivery
